I am a strong believer in supporting the community and providing care to all, not only to those who visit our dental office.
My most recent endeavour was to establish the Pain Control Clinic in Prince George. The goal of this clinic is to provide emergency dental care for the needy. I am very pleased with the success of this clinic and the support it has had from the dental community. The clinic is open every second Tuesday of the month and is run by volunteer dental staff.
Since 2000, I have been actively involved in geriatric dentistry with Northern Interior Health. Specifically, I visit Jubilee Lodge, a long-term care facility in Prince George. I spend 4 hours each month at the facility offering treatment to the residents who are unable to visit a dental office.
Apart from clinical practice, I have a passion for education and helping to train new dental staff. For the past 25 years, I have been a part-time clinical instructor at the College of New Caledonia in the dental hygiene program.
In the past, I also served in different management and executive roles for the BC Dental Association (BCDA), and I enjoyed the various challenges and opportunities that those positions afforded me.
